Ariana Grande’s Sweetener has an official release date meaning you can set aside 17 August for that drop. Ahead of that release, Grande is whetting fan appetites with new track, “The Light Is Coming” featuring Nicki Minaj.
Pharrell is the most prominent producer on Sweetener having worked on the majority of the tracks. In an interview with The Fader, Skateboy P described his role on the record as "part listener, part therapist, part stenographer."
On Twitter, Grande revealed that there would three collaborators on the album, including those we already know, Pharrell and Nicki Minaj, and newly announced, Missy Elliot.
Until we get the full album in August, listen to “The Light Is Coming” with Nicki Minaj below.
